Grand Theft Auto IV's Liberty City is roughly based on New York. Lots of movies are filmed in New York. Here we try and recreate some of Hollywood's New York-based movie scenes using locations from GTA IV. Check out our handy work...
Nothing's perfect. Stare closely enough at anything - even a masterpiece - and you're bound to find flaws sooner or later. They might be small. They might be insignificant. They might not detract from the overall quality of the piece at all...
Except when they really, really do. With these seven games, in fact, you don't need to stare. Their flaws are so huge, so obvious, so frustrating and so effing obnoxious that you can't help but
Everyday we receive hundreds of cheats submissions from people hoping to get their work (and their names) up on CheatPlanet. Some of these people are stupid. These are the absolute worst submissions we've had all week. Like this excerpt from a cheat you'll find on page two:
"…This cheat can only be done by sexy atractive peops like me, so if ur not atractive dnt try it, and then if u do try and it dosent work, ur obviously not as
Now up to his ears in charges of professional misconduct, anti-game activist and car crash of tragic human comedy Jack Thompson may well be in the twilight of his legal career. We decided to pay tribute to him in recompense for all the LOLs he's provided by cataloguing an archive of his greatest and funniest screw ups over the last two decades.
See if you can guess what game we’re talking about: in the war-torn near future, a supersolider - outfitted in skin-tight armor - wages battle against legions of aliens/other supersoldiers. To protect his scar-ridden face, he dons a nondescript, yet sleek helmet, thereby rendering him mute and indistinguishable from everything else on sale. Give up? It’s a trick question.

We love silly humour, so it's no surprise that The Naked Gun (and Police Squad, the series it spawned from) is one of our favourite series. Which is why we decided to do our own videogame-based homage to the film's famous opening skit, using Grand Theft Auto IV
Every week we get hundreds of cheat submissions from our readers to add to CheatPlanet. Only a few of these actually survive the brutal, razor-sharp scrutiny and testing we put them through, and emerge as the fine cheat flavored paste that we put onto CheatPlanet. Most of the leftovers we just throw away, flush them down the internet tube never to be seen again. However, there are a few exceptionally stinky cheats that we feel
Forget Niko, Liberty City itself is the true star of GTA IV. Rockstar has packed the city with enough tiny details to keep us playing and discovering for years. And man oh man were we thrilled to find this haunted playground near the first safe house. How is it haunted, you ask? The swing sets have chains hanging from them that, when properly nudged with a vehicle, will fling you violently up, down or sideways. Check the video for
Even two console generations ago we stopped batting our eyelids if games contained other, smaller games within them. It didn’t even seem odd if whole games were made up of dozens of little ones. Nowadays we use minigame mechanisms to open doors, enact fancy stealth kills, slaughter bosses or open chests. Minigames are everywhere, be it shoving boulders in Conan, coercing peasants in Oblivion or doing anything at all in Thrillville or
With the recent announcement of Guitar Hero World Tour, not to mention hints towards a Rock Band sequel, music-based games are undoubtedly more popular than they were a few years ago. One need only look at the recent slate of rereleases like the XBLA port of Rez or Samba de Amigo for the Wii
